High street store Topshop, is facing some strong criticism from its customers, after one of its shoppers found a necklace that displays 19th century racist depictions of East Asians.

Apparently the customer questioned the store manager about the necklace, who then defended the jewellery design, saying it was “vintage” and, therefore, not racist.

The customer soon shared their complaints on Twitter, where many agreed that the said necklace shared racist depictions of the Asian community.

The necklace and matching earrings have since been removed from Topshop’s website, but images of necklace are still floating around on many social media sites.
